Extremely useful as part of a New Technology in Science project. Students visited various museums/educational centres, recorded their experiences through video cameras and microphones. These images were them used with Pixton to produce comics.

What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!

We created comics in a safe environment. I loved the ability to create assignments and to share assignments with other teachers and to see what other teachers are doing with Pixton. Love that I can use their ideas in my classes.

My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.

– Ms. Lange, 7th Grade

Teacher in Marinette, Wisconsin

I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.

Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.

– Ms. Parker, Teacher

This was a great program for my students. They created panels of events leading to the Revolutionary War. They had to illustrate through their panels the relationship each panel had to the war. They loved the creative parts, and were impressed with their final product.

Teacher in Longmeadhow, Massachusetts

A comic has all the grammar and spelling elements of a regular writing assignment. It reinforces all of the State Learning Standards at every single level of your child's education, so it's a really important tool.

It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.

– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade

Our comprehensive project was to create our own graphic novel and to send a copy of it to the author that inspired us. We are now able to do that thanks to you folks at Pixton. Thank you so much for allowing us to have you in our classroom. I will be recommending you to my colleagues and students.

Pixton is a great tool for educators to help extend the lesson being taught. Students are given the opportunity to improve their creative writing skills through the use of a fun, interactive web 2.0 tool. I have shared this site with the members of my site, Technology Integration in Education.

The kids loved it, and it was a user-friendly way of sending important Student Council messages to others in the school. The students were able to make simple comics, but they could also spend more time to create more complex ones.

– Ms. Levy, Teacher

Pixton for Schools combines the freedom to create with a set of choices that students can explore. This gives all students, even those who don't believe they are creative, the ability to be engaged. Pixton is affordable, simple, intuitive, and most of all, great fun for students.

It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.

– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8

We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.

– Mrs. Kemper

Highly engaging, easy to use software with clever functions allowing me to review and feedback to my class. I can think of loads of ways it could be used to demonstrate and evidence learning.

– Ms. Pulleine, Year 3 English

Teacher in Devon, UK

Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
